What's Your Story?

Tuesday, January 06, 2009 Posted by Travis Saunders
Regular readers of the blog will know that I am quite a fan of ParticiPACTION. As part of their new campaign, they have introduced a "stories" section on their website which I think will be of interest to many of our readers. Individuals are encouraged to visit the website, and describe their favourite personal physical activity story. The idea is that people will be able to visit the site and get ideas and inspiration from the way that others have incorporated physical activity into their lives. Some of the stories are pretty inspirational, and the best ones will be used in future ParticiPACTION commercials.

There are already about 700 stories online so far (in French and English), and the numbers are growing rapidly. In addition, all stories are searchable by category, which is very handy when you want to find stories that are relevant to you. I've even put one up myself, although it is far less inspirational than most others that I've seen! I've put a thumbnail of my story below (for some reason I can't embed it), and clicking the thumbnail will take you to the actual story on the ParticiPACTION site. Although ParticiPACTION definitely has a Canadian focus, I encourage our readers from outside of Canada to check it out as well. And please consider sharing your physical activity story, through the site or otherwise, with others.
